OT: German "Satz"

A li'l question on German terminology for the lists linguistically enlightened
germanophones: The word _Satz_ can mean both "sentence" and "clause"; how do
you differentiate when necessary? I asked the teacher of my so-called
Introductory German Course, who said there aren't any more precise terms, but I
find it slightly difficult to believe that even professional linguists in the
German-speaking countries are happy to live without this distinction easily
